At GCSE pupils gained 100% pass for the 7th year running, 93% gaining 5 or more A* to C grades including English & Maths, 95% of passes at A* to C grades. Five pupils gained 10 A* & A grades with another student gaining 8 passes at A* & A.
Year 12 pupils had excellent AS results giving an 88% pass rate, forming an excellent basis for next year.
We are proud that so many of our Sixth Form students have gained their first choice of University placement. Many of our Year 11 students will now join our Sixth Form with new students who are only joining us for their Sixth Form education. We are able to see them develop into mature young adults both academically and through an extensive programme of extra curricular activities, equipping them fully for life in today’s society. This is what Highclare School does best, helping our students with individual attention and focusing on their strengths. We are very proud indeed of them all.
Highclare School is an Independent Day School. It is based on 3 separate sites within Sutton Coldfield and Erdington, situated in the heart of the West Midlands and within easy travelling distance of Birmingham City Centre and surrounding business centres.
Highclare’s ethos is to Achieve Individual Excellence for each pupil and to inspire all pupils to aim for the best results they can.
The traditional values that have sustained the school since 1932 are still relevant today and there is a strong emphasis on discipline, independent learning, respect for others and motivation to succeed. Throughout the school, alongside a strong academic curriculum, there is plenty of opportunity for pupils to experience life in the modern world, with extra curricular activities, clubs, sports and music and drama.

Originally begun in 1932 as a highly respected Girls’ School, a change in strategy throughout the year groups means we are now able to offer education to both boys and girls from 18 months to 18 years. A strong family atmosphere is maintained with small classes and high pupil staff ratios from Nursery through to Sixth Form.
Highclare receives regular inspections from the Independent Schools Inspection Service and the latest Inspection Report is available here. The ISI is part of the Independent Schools Council. For further information please see the ISC website.
